The first strains of aching vibrato
Awaken a stirring in my soul
As each crescendo swells I feel
Soothed and enthralled by the melodious tones
Ever so subtly, it builds
To a climactic moment of sound and passion!
I do not fall from these ecstatic heights
But gently float back down with gentle notes
To sweet slumber in my mundane surroundings
Memories of beauty and pain
Filtering through my dreams

**Based on Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 35: Canzonetta: Andante**

It is interesting, is it not,
how great music can both soothe and enthrall. As I read your poem, in my mind I was listening to a symphony. Lovely little piece, describing well the emotions music can bring. Thanks. Cyn

Symphony of words!
You're my kind of poet Frenchie, you've connected to my soul! However, Rachmaniovs 2nd piano concerto is what does it for has seen me through countless episodes of stress and difficult periods in my life. Long live the classics!

Thank you all for your comments and compliments. The first time I heard the piece, I was in complete awe. Beatrice, I understand where you're coming from. Rachmaninov is one of my favorite composers.
